Botanical name: Hebanthe eriantha
Suma, Pfaffia paniculata, is a ground vine whose root has been used for centuries to promote health. Much of suma root’s traditional use has been as an aphrodisiac and evidence suggests it helps to support balanced hormone levels. It is very nutritionally rich, containing antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins A, B, E, and K, minerals, and electrolytes. The electrolytes and B vitamins provide its energizing effect so suma root is sometimes called “Brazilian ginseng.” Ecdysterone helps to support healthy hormone levels in men. When hormone levels are in check, the body is able to repair itself and grow more quickly. Natives of the Amazon have also used suma root for centuries to boost libido.
